2007 Music



Earlier this year, I felt a little guilty about the mp3s I downloaded when I was in school. This summer, I deleted all of them, which is the majority of my music collection, and I was left with a much shortened playlist. No problem, I thought, I’ll just buy back the ones that I used to listen to all the time. But then I realized that if I wanted to be legit, I need money. While I miss the days of downloading songs by the gigload, this does force me to consider which music is worth my money.In 2007, I’ve purchased the following CDs:

Augustana – All The Stars And Boulevards

Eric Clapton – Clapton Chronicles

Franz Ferdinand – You Have It So Much Better

Jimi Hendrix – Experience Hendrix

Jars of Clay – Good Monsters

John Mayer – Continuum

Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon

Queen – Greatest Hits

Radiohead – In Rainbows

Joe Satriani – Surfing With The Alien

The Shins – Wincing the Night Away

Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

St. Vincent – Marry Me

Switchfoot – Oh! Gravity.

Derek Webb – The Ringing Bell

I have to say that Radiohead and Spoon are getting the most plays. I warmed up to St. Vincent after a few listens and Derek Webb’s lyrics in The Ringing Bell are awesome. So if anyone has any other suggestions for music, I’d like to hear them… so I can go and hear the music too… yeah…
